Now that Stephen Colbert is officially committed to take over after Letterman retires, we should probably start thinking about who can take over his show for him once he’s gone. They’re big shoes to fill, but we think the people on this list have a shot at breaking them in. More
Jason Biggs has landed himself in a bit of faux-controversy after tweeting some tasteless (but funny!) jokes about the assholes of Janna Ryan and Ann Romney. Specifically: their respective condition. More
I’ve never seen Meredith from The Office look so positively cheerful. In this promo for Kate Flannery‘s new show, Stand Up In Stilettos, the comedian gushes about her new show featuring female stand up comics, three per half-hour episode. The first show to feature only female comedians, I say hell yeah Kate!
Holy shit, you guys. The notoriously reclusive comedian Dave Chappelle appears to have joined Twitter yesterday, quickly amassing 100,000 followers. His account has yet to be verified, but Aziz Ansari says it’s him, and why would Tom Haverford lie to us? In addition to the celeb co-sign, something about his tweets thus far just seems very…Chappellian. More
This was amusing! I still don’t trust the real Mark Zuckerberg, though. More
Phil Hartman, the comedic genius and SNL cast member whose life was tragically cut short in 1998, was by all accounts a pretty great guy. This was especially notable in a group of people not exactly known for their sanity or civility. Hence, it comes as no surprise that when a fan and aspiring comedian sent him a tape of his work and a letter asking for feedback in 1996, he actually responded. Even so, the level of care and thought he put into giving this random guy constructive criticism went way above and beyond what a fan could reasonably expect of a busy actor and comedian. It’s really sweet!
Marketers figured out awhile ago that you just have to put the word “eco” in front of things to get people to buy them. But eco-medians? Are they green-colored things in the middle of the highway to keep you from driving in the wrong lane?
We all have a romantic fantasy. Some involve costumes. Some involve strange circumstances. Some involve… unicorns? And Aerosmith? Hey, different strokes for different folks. More
In a rare moment of bravery, celebrities have chosen to put the PR bullshit aside and concentrate on what really matters: a good Charlie Sheen joke. Us Magazine reports that various celebrities have taken to Twitter, posting their best Charlie Sheen one-liners, ranging from his personal problems to Two and a Half Men being pulled from the air indefinitely. Here are some of our favorites More
Let me preface this by saying that for years (seasons?) now, Kristen Wiig has been my favorite part of Saturday Night Live. With the exception of Gilly (blugh, Gilly), her recurring characters were consistently funny, original, and held their own against the more outlandish male counterparts. When Gawker did their roundup last winter of the best Kristen Wiig characters (Judy Grimes, Penelope), I was totally on board. Besides Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig is the best thing SNL had going for it.

When comedians are sexy it makes their jokes that much better (unless they truly aren’t funny). Stanley Cooper is one of the actors/comedians who floats everyone’s boat. He has this ‘guy next door’ look and yet when he dresses to … More
We all know that Brad Pitt is a sexy charming man who also has a comedic flare. Yet most of us don’t know about his practical joke side. On the Charlie Rose Show Chuck Palahniuk, writer of Fight Club, asks … More
Sexy comedian Bradley Cooper was spotted out and about in California in the last two days looking quite happy. After all ’tis the season to be jolly! Mr. Cooper was also spotted out with Renee Zellweger on a movie date … More
